About the Comics

Gray West

Gray West has made a name for himself as a yellow brick road comedian with his high-energy and hilarious performances. Hailing from Washington, DC, Gray has been winning hearts across the United States. He has also had the opportunity to open for well-known comedians such as Sydnee Washington, Beth Stelling, Teddy Carpenter and Isa Medina. Gray is one to watch in the comedy world with his unique style and positivity.

Lafayette Wright’s obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. He has spent close to a decade honing his skills on the DC comedy scene, and he now has a razor sharp act and undeniable onstage likability. He was featured in an episode of “Hart of the City” on Comedy Central. Lafayette won Comedy Kumite 11.1 (summer 2017) at the DC Improv, as well as Kumite 13.1 and 13.2 (winter 2018), Kumite 17.1 and 17.2 (fall 2018), and a Tournament of Champions (winter 2019).
